Adding wood to a fire : Super High Material (SHM) CD
Now we have the new generation of mastering technology from K2 - the K2 HD.
At the same time, Universal Music and JVC is annoucing CDs made of a new material - SHM - which is essentially high quality polycarbonate used in LCD production - providing a practical medium with qualities approaching that of glass. This will be another significant advancement in CD technology, and probably the most important in the 25 years of CD history.http://www.phileweb.com/news/audio/200710/03/7497.html
The new SHM CD will be released in Japan on 21 Nov 2007. The first lot will be of titles in jazz and classical music. Single CD will be priced at US$23, and Dual CD set will be priced at US$43.
Imagine what it will be like to have K2 HD sounds delivered through SHM CDs...... an I think this is not a dream, as JVC was the originator of both technologies.
